Hi Experts,

I have simple code in JSP:

String idText = request.getParameter( "id" );

        if ( idText == "test" )
        {
           out.println( "searching in test" );
        }
        else
        {
           out.println( "searching in prod" );
        }

for some reason it always go to  out.println( "searching in prod" ); even when I have "test" in idText.

Please help.

you should change the code to
String idText = request.getParameter( "id" );

        if ( idText.equals("test") )
        {
           out.println( "searching in test" );
        }
        else
        {
           out.println( "searching in prod" );
        }

you can also use, equalsIgnoreCase if you want to compare ignoring case

String idText = request.getParameter( "id" );

        if ( idText.equalsIgnoreCase("test") )
        {
           out.println( "searching in test" );
        }
        else
        {
           out.println( "searching in prod" );
        }
